Smart Energy Management System

urban ENERGY

urban ENERGY is developing an innovative IoT platform for smart cities. The platform takes on a key challenge for electromobility: The increasing number of electric cars and therefore charging stations will lead to increased load peaks and overloaded power grids. As a solution, urban ENERGY has developed software that uses artificial intelligence to connect energy production and consumption. Prediction algorithms determine the best possible loading times. This is done based on continuously recorded key figures such as consumption data and energy supply.
